BioPoly Receives U.S. Patent for Partial Resurfacing Implant

By Julie A. Vetalice

BioPoly was issued an additional U.S. patent pertaining to partial resurfacing implant designs and method of implantation.

The proprietary BioPoly® material combines an orthopaedic polymer (i.e. ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene) with hyaluronic acid to yield a robust, self-lubricating material that is extremely biocompatible with cartilage tissues.

BioPoly products are CE Marked and have been in use clinically since 2012. They are available globally (ex-U.S.) through OrthoD.
